Donald Trump fires four on 'The Celebrity Apprentice' as Vivica A. Fox accuses Kenya Moore of stealing her phone
UPI News Service, 02/03/2015
Donald Trump cleaned house on Monday night's edition of "The Celebrity Apprentice," firing four contestants instead of the usual two.
The first to go was Kenya Moore, who had trouble getting along with various, alternating teammates -- particularly Brandi Glanville and Vivica A. Fox -- throughout the season. As project manager, she was fired after her team -- which included Fox and Geraldo Rivera -- lost a competition to create a photo bomb and hashtag campaign for King's Hawaiian.
Fox also accused Moore of stealing her cell phone and tweeting unflattering remarks about Fox from Fox's account.
Trump later fired Glanville, Johnny Damon and Ian Ziering after their three-person team failed to win a jingle-writing task for Anheuser-Busch. Ziering's Sharknado 2 co-star Fox, Rivera and Leeza Gibbons were declared the winners in that challenge.
The night's previously taped second episode featured the late Joan Rivers as an adviser alongside Trump's son Eric.
The winner of the competition is to be announced in the season finale Feb. 16 on NBC.
